Valero awards terminal and marine services contract
The GB-based major petroleum refining company Valero (formerly Chevron) has awarded a three year terminal and marine services contract to GAC UK. As from 1 February 2017, GAC UK will manage and support the discharge of 12 - 14 million t of clean petroleum products from up to 180 tankers a year at the ports of Cardiff and Plymouth. Services will be extended to include Avonmouth from 1 April.
Terminal services will include the secure and safe manning of berths, ship/shore safety checks and connecting shore cargo lines to vessels’ manifolds.
This latest signing comes hot on the heels of GAC UK’s recent announcement that it won a contract to support Shell UK’s operations at Braefoot Bay. (kd)
